Yum! JD, could you take a photo of the pads that came with kit?
Just curious, the calipers look different than I remember.
Also, you can step up from those Fiat bearing adjustment nuts. VW type 1 with king & link pin spindles
have a "pinch" type nut available from CB performance. Let's you dial in a perfect bearing preload!

Thanks for the tip Steve, will check them out ASAP... also on a mission to adapt a Wildwood 4 piston to the rear
Jim I tested them out immediately outside the shop..... oh my ... the fronts lock smartly and with real effort a bit of lock from the rears... out out of the box, oh my.... going to dial a bit more front bias with my handy dandy cockpit mounted bias adjuster...

Just would like to mention that Joe bought the brakes from Auto Ricambi, so those are not the WHOA brand brakes. Yes, they both work the same way and use Wilwood calipers, but sold by different companies.
